    “one bad ass machine”

    The Good: its fast, ready to go out the door

    The Bad: price, not all carbon

    Overall Review:

    What can I say this is an enduro machine! Just like all the forums out there and a reviews the 29er wheels roll fast and they are harder to turn so you really have to trust your bike which you can do with this thing. It eats up anything you can throw at it. You can jump, drop, crash, go fast and get ladies on this thing. If your a strava king then this is your bike since it can do it all. I thought the front end would try to move away from you but it doesnt. The engineers really put some thought into this one and the build specs are just fine to where you should not need to change anything from the stock build. Granted some will throw enves on it or a reverb, that may be the only changes needed imo if you dont like rovals. Personally im not a fan of the command post. As others have said at this price range I dont care what your reasoning is for having aluminum on the rear end I would expect carbon all around. I would also like to see a bottom protection plate.If you have the dough buy this if you dont watch ebay for a better deal. If you are a racer, strava king or simply out to go fast this bike will get you up and down quick. Jumping there are some guys out there with enough flow and style you can use this for that but im not that smooth. 4.5 for the command post and having aluminum.
